Free take away text bubbles from the exhibit will be handed out to all attendees (while supplies last).

All are welcome! January 30th from 1 to 2 pm.

Talking Wellness is part of Research Wednesdays speaker series presented by the OCAD U Library. It's a forum for anyone (undergrad, or graduate students, staff, or faculty) to present in a casual, supportive environment about research activities, collections and more. We apply a broad definition of research which includes a variety of activities within the domains of art, design, libraries and archives. This event is open to all members of the OCAD U community as well as the general public.
